    Great food and service, as usual. Nothing out there quite like it. If you are fortunate, you might get "the Voice" as a server.

    Everything was delicious as usual. I always get the Halibut and my husband enjoyed the salmon and chicken and waffles. And breakfast was delicious too, I enjoy the eggs benedict a lot. The service was great too. Always enjoy ourselves.

    Lovely setting on the edge of the marina & bay with spectacular views of the mountains. We loved the cozy ambiance of the restaurant with the historic cabin feel. The food was really good, started with morels and had halibut & new york steak with pepper sauce. The service was excellent, from timing on courses to friendly attitudes. Loved the whole experience and we look forward to future visits.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and were seated in the perfect corner table by the window. Our server Kaylee was fantastic and so was the food. (We had the black cod special and the pork tenderloin). Of course we had to finish with the huckleberry crisp which was delicious as always. Thank you so much Elkins for a lovely evening!

    We boated in for a 4:45 dinner reservation for 5. We arrived at 3; theyhad no problem lem moving our time to 4:30, when dining opens. Meanwhile, we decided to sit out on the lawn on the 81 degree afternoon. There was a waiting list. The staff said it would be a out 30 min, but it ended up being much less. Service was efficient and friendly, appetizers were the right size with a great selection. Most of us had a few of their huckleberry press drinks. As a lightweight, I'm fairly confident they were weak, since I felt no effects after 3 and no food. Tasty anyway. Dinner was outstanding for everyone. Definitely a pricey place, but considering the location, not irrational. Would definitely visit again!

    We were pleasantly surprised by the new modernized menu and exceptional food. The service was better than we expected too. Morel mushroom app was so good i came back a few days later and got it again. Lobster on the side went well on our pizza and with our bread. Pricing was lower than expected and quality was higher than expected.

    Food was amazing. Elkins Black Pepper Sauce on the New York Strip was outstanding. Our waiter was amazing and told us very interesting stories of how he came to Priest Lake in search to gold pan and made our dinner that much more memorable. I wish I remembered his name but he was awesome! Will be coming back

    I had the pork rib eye and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten. It was tender and juicy and flavorful to say the least. I loved every bite and I want to eat that dinner again. My wife loved her pasta and we both relished the fresh cooked huckleberry crisp. It was truly a sumptuous dinner and a wonderful time at Priest lake's finest restaurant. Well done Elkins and Chef Graham. Sincerely Jeff nadeau

    This was our 44th wedding anniversary dinner. Had pepper steak sauce back when we dated. We heard that this was close to what we had 47 year ago in S.E Washington State. We were not disappointed. The view out over the lake was perfect. Staff was great. Thank you Elkins Resort.

    We decided to drive up to Priest Lake on a lark. I arbitrarily made reservations at Elkins Resort and off we went. After a day of site seeing around Sandpoint and Priest River we headed on up to Elkins for dinner and were simply blown away. It was noisy because there were a lot of people there but we could hear each other just fine. The food was stunning. We had the seafood étouffeé and the smoked chicken breast which were both delicious. The bananas doulce de leche was delicious and presented in a wildly creative way with a neat kind of smokes on the side. The youthful staff made us feel old but very, very welcome. Great experience.

    The food and service was delightful. The restaurant is a few hundred feet from the lake, but the view is still beautiful. Pricing is as you might expect for the quality of food and the location, but it's not a weekly destination for us so we "splurged" a bit.
